Well, Anniec you are a true star!!

Just 2 to go!

"Jolly's after orifice" (4,2) ( _ O _ E/ _ _ )

and "Shock condition of teararses when separated" (5,4)

( S _ L _ _ / _ N _ S )

I think this is correct. Please tell me if i@m wrong!!

"Old leader from old city with pecker in an erect state" (5) I've inserted NEHRU. Can you see the wordplay? I can't!!

HOLE UP fits, but the wordplay is a bit tenuous.
